2012 Maybach 57

If Rolls-Royce is king of all the automobiles, then the 2012 Maybach 57 like a Kaiser. While Rolls puts premium on presentation, tradition, British classic opulence, Maybach is just business, no nonsense impervious for changes, standing while the other ultra-luxury automobiles progress. Such approach hasn#8217;t been really successful, though as such, the year of 2012 will be Maybach#8217;s final year they join Wilhelm in annals of the history.

Maybach 57 is 1 of 3 cars which is sold by the Mercedes-Benz division. Essentially, all cars are the same but 62 comes with longer wheelbase, @ Landaulet comes with roof that is quasi-convertible. Though name of Maybach nearly goes back to days of Kaiser, this brand#8217;s current version came out in the year 2002.

This car itself dates from this period, making it 1 of oldest on road.

Frankly speaking, the age of Maybach#8217;s shows so does the lineage. This Maybach has good resemblance to Mercedes-Benz S-Class that was introduced back in the year 2000, but it is mechanically based on this car too. Still this is a Mercedes-Benz we are talking about, Maybach certainly has updated over all these years, but overall, 57 looks more like a number than a luxury bespoke sedan.

When compared, you will, you will remain hard-pressed for detecting influences of BMW in Rolls-Royce, or Volkswagen DNA in Bentley.

To their credit, this 2012 Maybach 57 is constructed still to standard which will make an old Prussian nod along with some stern approval. For sending the head back in to plush headrests, the Maybach along comes with choice of the V12 twin-turbocharged engines: 1 gives 543 of horse power other for hp of 620. Latter is also called 57 S.

Putting Kaiser aside for one moment, it is P. Diddys oil executives of Dubai of today who do matter. What they’re more likely for caring about the trappings of interior. Sure, dash looks just like some thing from turn of this century (this 1, not Kaiser#8217;s) the in-car controls of electronics are one generation behind the ones that are found in Mercedes-Benz S-Class of 2012.

Yet the modern-day big wigs are now likely for enjoying the Maybach from backseat, which has wood, leather, craftsman ship they would expect looking at exorbitant cost of Maybach.

Maybach also sets it self apart from Rolls by giving one pair of the heated reclining back seat chairs of captain that are separated by center console having entertainment and climate controls. There is also miniature fridge that is perfect for some chilling champagne – but given the laws of open container, perhaps it’d be better for getting Maybach 62 the solid optional partition.

If such an opulence is not really opulent, buyers get to resort to Maybach #8220;Commissioning Studio#8221; which equips 57 in any way that they want. You need to be prepared to look at the price tags which are shocking as the options of Maybach very expensive #8211; even for this range of price.

Frankly speaking, it is really hard for comparing the cares which cost a lot more as compared to average home of America only just less as compared to the domestic gross product in Kyrgyzstan. Still if you want to spend most of the time in backseat, then 2012 Maybach 57 or the sibling of long-wheel base is the best choice.

If you yearn for something that has more of character and does not look as if it is ten years old after you leave the dealership, then I think that Rolls-Royce Phantom or the Bentley Mulsanne is better choice. Also, it is really hard for arguing with Mercedes-Benz S600 that is #8220;regular old#8221;. This probably will not be choice of Kaiser, but Angela Merkel will certainly the more modern take of German luxury.

Trim Levels, Body Styles, Options

2012 Maybach 57 is ultra luxury sedan that is offered in 2 levels of trim: 57 57 S which is more powerful. Also, there is long-wheelbase model which is called Maybach 62 quasi-convertible that is called Landaulet which I will discus in different reviews.

Either the model of Maybach 57 can be customized by you with any feature that purchaser can of, but still the standard kit comes with 19-inches wheels, self-leveling active suspension, cruise adaptive control, front-cabin sun roof, rear power sunshades, ten way seats on power front along with massaging, heating, memory settings, power tilt–telescoping wheel of steering, leather full interior, heated and reclining chairs of rear captain#8217;s, 4-zone control of climate beverage rear cooler. The tech features are rear and front controls of Bluetooth, system of navigation, older model of Mercedes COMAND interface of electronics, rear view camera, DVD system of entertainment 21-speakers Bose surround-sound system of audio along with single-CD in-dash player, six-CD console-mounted changer, satellite radio audio aux jack.

Performance powertrains

Both Maybach 57 57 S are rear-wheel drive are powered by the versions of twin-turbocharged V12 which are found in few of AMG-tuned high-end Benzes. 5.5-liter V12 for 57 gives 543 of hp 664 pound-feet torque. 57 S gives you 6.0-liter model of V12 along with 620 of hp 738 lb-ft torque.

Maybach is estimating that both will go from 0 to sixty mph in lower range of five second. EPA says that Maybach 57 57 S will give 10 mpg for city, 16 mpg for highway combined 12 mpg.

2012 Maybach 57 comes with comprehensive list of some safety features which includes the side airbags for front rear passengers, side full-length curtain airbags, anti lock brakes, control of traction, stability control, rear and front sensors of parking rear view camera.

Interior Design Special Features

Owner of Maybach will find front cabin which resembles previous-generation lavish S-Class of Mercedes-Benz. Electronics controls are behind times, overall design lacks sense of any classical grandeur that is evident in Bentley Mulsanne or the Rolls-Royce Phantom. Current S-Class too is a bit classier as compared to Maybach.

Still, it is safe bet which a lot of owners of Maybach will occupy rear quarters as the chauffeurs ferry all around. They’ll find one pair of the reclining heated seats of bucket separated by center console (3-places bench is one option). It has refrigerated compartment controls for dual-zone rear control of climate standard entertainment system of DVD.

Space is a bit copious, but it isn’t enough, long-wheel base Maybach 62 is more spacious and has footrests of La-Z-Boy-type.

Driving Impressions

All the Maybach cars drives like large automobile that it is. These cars are really amazing and there is a lot of power inside in order to power all the mass. Both 57 57 S are very quick. But in corners, this weight works against Maybach; there is just no way for keeping three tons from the wallowing while cornering at the speeds.

Yet these automobiles are built for delivering rappers to American Music Awards, and not for setting lap times at race tracks. For all such deliveries, 2012 Maybach 57 gives beautiful ride which swallows the bumps with out any floating around like luxury yacht.
